In 1971, Carter made her Broadway debut in a production of “Soon” which only had three performances. Eventually she became part of the production “What Time of Night It Is” as the Music Director, and around the same time she made an appearance with Bette Davis in the stage musical “Miss Moffat”.

During the next year, she starred in the series “You Take the Kids”, which was cancelled due to low ratings. She would then work on numerous projects, including game shows, television specials, and low budget films. She also starred in “Hangin’ with Mr. Cooper” from 1993 to 1995.

During this time, she was also cast in a Broadway revival of “Annie” but was later replaced after a commercial was shown with a white woman portraying her role. In 2001, she appeared in the pilot of the show “Reba” and would then make guest appearances in “Ally McBeal”.

13 On the day before she died, Nell was rehearsing for a play, "Raisin", in Long Beach, California.

#Quote
1 When I was growing up, it was not something you aspired to. I was a weirdo to want to be in show business. Most kids wanted to be teachers or nurses.
2 (About the 20th Anniversary revival of "Annie") "I want this show to run for at least three years with me in it, then I want to take a week off".

#Trademark
1 Short stature.
2 Southern accent.
3 Her husky voice.
